Nobody in a leadership position in the church who is interested in leading a healthy and thriving church, can ignore this book. There is certainly need for a manual on how to manage and administrate a church of which Jesus Christ is the head and the king. There are various indications in the New Testament how churches were led in those times and there are numerous examples of good leaders and administrators in the Bible. There are indications that this aspect doesn't receive enough attention in the training of pastors and many leaders in the church have to learn the hard way by making mistakes. This book is meant for all who have to play a leading role in their churches--ministers, pastors, priests, elders, and administrative persons.
